Air Arabia's 300-room three-star Centro Hotel at Sharjah Airport is on track to complete construction by April 2010.

The concrete structure for all the four floors of the hotel has already been completed and the low cost airline even believes that the hotel can be completed below budget.

Air Arabia signed a management contract with Rotana Hotels for the Centro Hotel in early 2007.

Centro by Rotana, Sharjah Airport, will offer both standard rooms and suites. Features of the hotel include a full casual-style dining area, in-room wireless Internet connectivity and entertainment. This will be combined with comforts such as a gymnasium and swimming pool, together with on-site business facilities, private meeting rooms and a business centre.

Centro by Rotana at the Sharjah Airport is a key element of Air Arabias expansion strategy, said Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia. We are pleased to announce that despite challenging economic conditions, the project is on track, and will be ready to welcome guests by 2010. In addition to enhancing the services offered by Air Arabia, the hotel will also strengthen ancillary revenues, and we are confident that Centro will further improve the hospitality experience at Sharjah Airport.

In the first five months of 2009, passenger traffic at Sharjah Airport reached 2.33 million, up by 11%compared to last year. According to 2008 World Airport Traffic Report released by Airports Council International, Sharjah International Airport saw annual traffic growth of 22.1% in 2008, and was ranked third among the worlds 25 fastest-growing airports.
